I’m still working my way through Angelique’s fourth book (Trial of Magic) and I can safely say that it is going to be quite bit longer then Reign of Magic as it is already past Reign of Magic’s word count and I’m STILL. NOT. FINISHED. YET.
It sometimes feels like I have to put a excessive amounts of energy into projects like this that have so many complex and interwoven plot lines going on. I want to make sure I get everything right, which sometimes means throw-away lines from the Timeless Fairy Tales series get their own dedicated scene in The Fairy Tale Enchantress series. (This happened with a line from Twelve Dancing Princesses.) I was trying to come up with a way to show a bit of my writing process to you, and then I remembered I already did something like this back when I wrote Snow White!
Watch this YouTube video to see the interesting… strange(?) conversations I have with myself!
Considering I made this video in 2018, it’s kind of comical how little things have changed. When you are listening to the video, just subsite “Trial of Magic” every time I say Snow White, and then when the pile of books shows up, mentally add a few more books to the pile to represent Snow White + the three Angelique books. 2018 Research “me” didn’t know how good she had it – I have even more books to deal with now!
Watch until the end of the video to see my bloopers reel!
I hope this made you laugh, Champions! Thanks for watching, and now I’d better get back to the slog…
